Experiences with the Blom-Singer prosthesis following Blom-Singer puncture and following functionally disordered neoglottis phonatria


Hno 32(7): 286-293
Experiences with the Blom-Singer prosthesis following Blom-Singer puncture and following functionally disordered neoglottis phonatria
The Blom-Singer puncture is a new operative technique which can help to make the laryngectomized patient speak again even years after laryngectomy. 34 patients were treated with a modified procedure. 5 patients with a good voice gave up despite intensive medical and speech therapy. Painstaking postoperative treatment is needed to make the Blom-Singer puncture successful. Patients who had a Blom-Singer prosthesis fitted after a neoglottis procedure spoke after only brief instruction without speech therapy being necessary.
